Wish I knew someone to send his way.
To add to the post, I see these guys around a lot. Nice equipment, high end clientele, and an excellent name locally.

Thanks for the kind words, we really appreciate it. We are very busy and hope we can stretch the work out longer until we fill the job vacancies. Otherwise we do what we can when we can, always keeping the quality level at the maximum.
It is getting more and more difficult to find qualified arborists in this area, especially long term.

@Tree Pete; Maybe starting your own in-house apprenticeship program would provide for the long term stability of talent you are looking for. Maybe have built in protections for your interests, like the navy does with its officers. As in a multi-year commitment to work for you folks at a specified pay scale for a set number of years, in order to repay your investment of time and effort in a candidate. I would bet a ton of young guys would jump at the chance for such an opportunity.

This suggestion does not provide an answer for your current needs, but could help you to stay stable in the future. Just a thought.

Thanks Tim, we try to have that atmosphere and philosophy here already. Long-term stability is what we offer but Cape Cod has many seasonal employees and it is expensive to live here; that is why we've lost a couple of guys this past year - cost of living in a resort area. Really appreciate your feedback and wish you the best in your business endeavors as well. Pete
